Instagram is still working on taking care of its users. After communicating the functions to fight bullying and offensive comments , it is now launched in another update on the likes .
We know that the amount of LIKES determines some type of status within social networks and this is not only the case of public people and influencers but is also turning to the same users.
Instagram , in one of its updates, is testing a function that leaves the amount of Likes or Likes only in view of the publisher and not of the followers. The main idea of this change is to relax, lower pressures, protecting the mental health of instagrammers.
Countries like Australia, Canada, Brazil, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, among others, are the first to see this update.
This decision also responds by the company to certain studies that ensure that young people, the main target of this app, are affected by the amount of likes or not to their publications and Instagram aims to be a place of expression and not of pressure
The most affected in these changes will be the influencers who exhibit the number of followers allows them to legitimize their role within the social network.
